I have the coolest job in the world. I love working with the technology behind storytelling. Solving workflow, improving communication, setting up processes, these are all fun and challenging problems of modern film, commercial, and interactive productions, and I get to do it for a living.
When I'm not working, I'm in the water, swimming at the local beach or traveling for a good dive.
What do you do for work?
I am a specialist in the management, operation, and maintenance of complex content production systems. I use technology, often in creative ways, to make production faster, simpler, and more efficient, while appropriately maintaining quality.
Taking into consideration business, development, and aestetic interests, my work focuses on feasability and management of the tecnhical systems used to manufacture engaging content.
I've had the opportunity to build technology and teams for the largest production companies, commercial agencies, and even a start-up. I've worked on summer blockbusters and great indie films, with talented directors and seasoned production staff, and for some of the most recoganizable brands in the world.
I have a small company 300 Ninjas, Inc. where I help others achieve their goals.
What do you do for play?
In 1999 I took a PADI course and received my scuba certification. Since that first open water dive in Cozumel, swimming below the surface has been my favorite pasttime.
I was inspired by Silvia Earle's 2009 TED talk and her TED Prize wish to use all means to ignite public support and restore the ocean. To use the means available to me, I've created EpicDive with the idea to document an adventure circumnavigating the globe while scuba diving.
Two basic parts, work that is fun and play which will one day be my work.
EpicDive is my dream project. It is a fusion of my love of scuba diving and my desire to lead others to be more engaged in matters related to the ocean.
I will make updates as they happen over at epicdive.net
My work helps me fulfill my inherit need to solve problems by helping other people solve theirs. Software development, user experience, and production management, these are the parctical arts of modern content. 300ninjas.com
